North Hertfordshire. It is situated on a chalk ridge at almost the highest point in the county, approximately 3 miles south of the market town of Royston.

It has a first school, a village hall, the Saxon parish church of St. Mary, a small chapel, a highly active cricket club and an excellent village pub and restaurant set in a 16th century coaching inn.
There has reportedly been a settlement at Reed for 2,000 years, and the community was mentioned in the
Domesday Bookof 1086 (as Retth). A number of houses in the village boast the remnants of ancient moats, and the village includes a number of ancient woods on its outskirts. There were 273 residents recorded as living in the village in the United Kingdom Census 2001.
